Bible: 1 John 2:18-23

Warning About False Teachers

2:18 Children, it is the last hour, and just as you heard that the antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists 1  have appeared. We know from this that it is the last hour. 2:19 They went out from us, but they did not really belong to us, because if they had belonged to us, they would have remained 2  with us. But 3  they went out from us 4  to demonstrate 5  that all of them do not belong to us. 6 

2:20 Nevertheless you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you all know. 7  2:21 I have not written to you that 8  you do not know the truth, but that 9  you do know it, and that 10  no lie is of the truth. 2:22 Who is the liar but the person who denies that Jesus is the Christ 11 ? This one is the antichrist: the person who denies the Father and the Son. 2:23 Everyone who denies the Son does not have the Father either. The person who confesses the Son has the Father also. 12
